Meet ViaSat at Connected Aircraft eEnablement Conference, LHR 2017

Having real internet on your fleet isn’t just about the best possible passenger experience, it’s also about the multiple additional benefits that connectivity delivers. From new revenue streams to improved aircraft performance management, connectivity has become the gamechanger in aviation and ViaSat quality leads the way.

Delivering an Unparalleled Customer Experience

ViaSat’s Meherwan Polad will give a keynote speech at the conference, on Delivering an Unparalleled Customer Experience. Be sure to hear Meherwan speak about the requirement that we place at the very core of our business.

ViaSat connectivity enables the connected aircraft and, with our scheduled 1 Tbps global broadband network taking shape fast, ViaSat is becoming the connectivity provider of choice for the world’s airlines. We’d love the opportunity to meet you in London to learn more about your connectivity projects, so just click here and let us know when you’d like to connect up…

ViaSat In-flight Internet

Only the very best quality internet connectivity at 30,000 feet enables the fully-connected aircraft, with the best possible passenger experience. We own the full stack, from satellite to aircraft modem hardware, to ground station network, and ViaSat innovation fearlessly challenges the technological status quo. Everything we do, we do it better.

ViaSat-2 Launch Changes Everything

The successful launch of our latest satellite, ViaSat-2, means that we are significantly closer to our global constellation. When VS-2 is live in early 2018, air routes in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and parts of South America, as well across the Atlantic to the UK, will benefit from 300 Gbps ViaSat connectivity.

Your Flight Path to the Connected Aircraft

Our products in flight operations and wireless IFE work with an airline’s connectivity goals, with additional benefits delivered as the connected fleet takes shape.

A Dubliner’s View on Visiting the Carlsbad Campus

The Dublin sales and marketing team had a very successful week of meetings, workshops and strategic planning sessions at ViaSat Inc.’s corporate headquarters in Carlsbad, California last week. All eyes are on AIX 2017 (Hamburg, Germany, 4 – 6 April 2017), as a platform to tell the aviation world the compelling story of how ViaSat in-flight internet and onboard entertainment enables the accelerating trend towards personal device entertainment and complements our suite of operational apps.

More value for airlines

San-Diego-airport-Southwest.jpgThis is a big story, as you can tell. Luckily, the acquisition of Arconics by ViaSat brings together a wide selection of great people, skills and resources, plus a unified vision that helps bring us closer every day. The vision is all about delivering the best possible value to our customers and enabling the world’s greatest airlines to resolve a wide variety of challenges with in-flight internet, wireless IFE and operational apps.

ViaSat and Southern California

We flew to San Diego with Aer Lingus and United. The ViaSat campus is in Carlsbad, just a short drive north of San Diego, in a beautiful setting between the hills and the Pacific. We spent a lot of time with our colleagues in the Commercial Mobility, Aviation building, conveniently located next to Palomar Airport, so there’s
never a dull moment, with private jets and small aircraft flying by every few minutes. The team there is so welcoming, we felt right at home in seconds. Having a slide in the office to travel between floors helps too!

Over in the main building (one of over a dozen buildings on campus, with more in planning), we got to do some great work with the design team and met with really interesting people from many sections of the company. ViaSat’s ethos, and its focus on looking after its people, was evident in the details, from the rock music
playing from speakers on the palm tree-lined routes between buildings (we heard Thin Lizzy and U2 in the mix), to the on-tap orange juice and fresh-brewed coffee, to the incredible Hub, a place for ViaSat team members to connect, eat and relax in the sun. And the sun? We’d timed our visit well because, after having endured some days of rain and grey, our Californian friends brought the SoCal sun back for us. And it was just perfect.

Connecting apps and in-flight internet to deliver awesomeness

Aer-Lingus-San-Francisco-Arconics-ViaSat-Gary-Byrnes.jpgWe made super progress in planning how best we can work together over the coming years, to tell our incredible story to the airline industry. Watch this space (or sign up for our newsletter here) and we’ll keep you posted on the many awesome developments that are in the pipeline. And if I was to sum up California and ViaSat in one word, it would be that: Awesome.

Working on getting back to see the team at Carlsbad already…
